Re: Barbed Wire Trap set on trail in Kent

15 March 2016 - 3:06pm
Anglers did something similar on the river Lune near Lancaster using fishing line across the river with hooks dangling from it at head height. That was on a stretch the local riparian rights owners had agreed access for the John o'Gaunt rowing club and the university rowing club. A lass from the uni club got a badly cut up around or actually on the face. The local sports club (fishing club plus other sports like drinking in the clubhouse) who own the rights knew the culprits and the boss of the coppers increasing was a member of the club apparently. Got all this from a member of the club. Seems the guys who did it were joking about it among other club members in the clubhouse clubhouse bar just before the lass got injured. Senior copper said no further action was being taken.

If the culprits ever get found out I bet nothing will come of it. Landowners and fishing right owners are protected by the police not out groups like cyclists, rowers and canoeists.

I've only just noticed this post.
The sickness and depravity of elements of the UK populous never fail surprise and anger me in equal measure,it is truly disturbing

Barbed Wire Trap set on trail in Kent

be careful out there, especially if you're around Maidstone and dropping down to the Pilgrims Way off road. There's some sick people around

I'd care more about whether they were quality rims hubs and spokes before I even look at the rim size..

Hi,
Its not rocket science
Carry camping gear in the panniers.
Assuming its not rear suspension.

Another options is to use frame bags, check out offerings from Blackburn, Alpkit, and Revelate to name but a few.

Thanks for the reply.
Think I'll focus on the North York moors.

Re: hardtail or full sus

Many thanks for all your comments.
I have taken the plunge and bought a Santa Cruz Tallboy.
It's full suspension and has 29 er wheels.
Just realised that it has tubeless rims and tyres , one of which has suddenly deflated. All new to me so another learning curve as to how to sort that one.
Thanks again.
Steve.

Re: MTB C2C Ravenglass - Ravenscar

8 February 2016 - 2:09pm
Ive started organising Ravenglass to Ravenscar later this year with 4 or 5 others over 5 days, I'm going to have a couple of guys to follow us along the route in a 9 seater combi van as safety and to carry our gear. Has anyone rode this route before, and any areas to avoid?
Is it just me or does the .Gpx file on pedal north not work?
Cheers,
dave

I spent six years at university in York, and believe me, there really aren't any on the Yorkshire Wolds unless you enjoy trudging along horse-churned grass and mud bridleways. It must be a total swamp up there at the moment, you have my sympathies.

Yorkshire Wolds/Lincolnshire Wolds

31 January 2016 - 9:18pm
Please does anyone know of any decent off road routes around the Wolds. I know of some but they seem to include a fair amount of road riding. I want to test out my new full suspension bike.
Please are there any guide books recommended.
Thanks
Steve
